I thought it was really cute at the end when they give you the check they put it in a book where other guests sign on the pages ! Great experience.”Leticia P.

Top Review: “I ate breakfast here recently and it was fantastic! Very cute spot and location within walking distance to McKinley Park. I had their oatmeal which was really delicious and came with fresh fruit and nuts beautiful displayed on the oatmeal. Their coffee was high quality but a little too strong and bitter for my particular taste. The service was very attentive. We ate inside by the window but their was also nice outdoor dining. We ate quite early in the morning, but I noticed later in the morning,  there was a wait and a line. Cash only, but free ATM inside.”Leilani B.

Maybe it is the fresh tortillas that accompany your meal, or the unique veggie blend sauteed in something heavenly. Even the scrambled eggs taste better here. Maybe it’s that I put them all together and make a perfect bite. I really don’t know.”Emma T.
